Awesome recipe, super easy, makes a great sandwich bread. Good crumb and not too sweet or bland like some recipes. Give it a try!

I've tried several dozen different bread recipes trying to find the perfect one and they all failed me until this one. This is the best recipe ever. Its light and fluffy and extremely easy to make, it only took about 10 minutes to make the batter and rising time was cut in half compared to most recipes, awesome. I can honestly say this is the best bread I've ever had. The flavor is so good. Finally my search is over, this is the perfect one!!!

This is the BEST raised bread recipe I've used. I had to change it a tiny bit. Added about 3/4 cup wheat bran. I got started and discovered I had no sugar. Used same amount of brown sugar. Perfect! It made 2 loaves and a dozen rolls

I made it for the first time and it came out great! My brothers loved it! They want me to make it again and very soon. Definately going to make my own bread from now on :D

Came out well, may cut back on the yeast just a tad, but i liked it because it gave it a consistency like yeast bread. Slices had to be cut a bit thick since it was so soft and homemade. Used a bread knife to cut it and it came out texas-toast thick. Definitely recommend it and will be making my own bread now! :)

Very easy to make. The second time I made it I used 1.5 packages of yeast and used a little more sugar. Good both ways. Nice post!

Amazing! A little garlic butter as a baste and a spread and the loaves didn't last more than 15 minutes. My neighbor even came to ask what lovely smell was, so we were happy to share!

Very simple recipe to make! Made 2 large loaves. However, I wonder if it needed 2 pkgs of yeast as it seemed to be very predominant in the overall taste.
